Change teh terminology of Shutdown vs Shutdown (deallocate)
I think the terminology of shutting down a VM from the Portal is confusing. At this point it looks like if I do a Shutdown it actually deallocates the VM and I lose the IP address. Can we not have a differentiation between shutting down the VM and actually deallocating the VM? Not sure if that makes sense but what I want is a way to shut down the VM from the admin portal without losing the IP address. Also even after I shutdown the VM from the within the VM the status still says running instead of Shutdown. This does not help me identify what state the actual VM is currently in.
Right now, we don’t plan to change this terminology. If folks up-vote this, we would consider it.
